Join Trudy on an hour-long acoustic journey through a selection of her songs and the stories behind them. Accompanying herself on guitar, she sings about everyday life - its joys, its complexities, and its funny side - in the genres of folk and jazz. This is the 6th in her concert series, called Solo Sessions, of intimate performances of original work, in interesting spaces around Cape Town.

"It is not a cliché that Trudy bares her soul, in the Solo Sessions. Intimate and deeply heartfelt, she draws the audience into her lifelong journey of self-discovery and personal affirmation. And some rollicking self-penned tunes, to boot."
Theresa Smith, an independent arts writer

"Trudy’s music and the stories behind them, come from a place which touches & moves the souls around her. The stories & music share strong emotions which entertain, teach & reflect. A wonderful insight into an artist, her process & her humanity. So beautiful!"
Francois Adriaan

"WOW! What an intimate evening with you and your guitar. You provided us with a high-class performance enjoyed by all in the room. It was so refreshing to listen to original music with authentic lyrics describing your personal life experiences. May your music continue to inspire in 2023 and beyond. Stay passionate, stay true."

Our Story

Cape Town’s Premier Community Theatre, voted “Best Theatre” by Cape Town Experiences and boasting a full, diverse and entertaining line up all year round!

The Masque Theatre was founded by Muizenberg local; Bertie Stern in 1959 with the aim to encourage participation in theatre by the wider community. In 1993 Bertie bequeathed the Masque into trust for the benefit and growth of community theatre. The Masque was totally destroyed by fire in 1997, and took two years to rebuild - a feat which would not have been possible without the generosity of the late Joan St Leger-Lindbergh. The Masque is now a first-class venue, seating 173, able to host live shows (musicals, dramas, dancing, etc.), seminars, presentations, film shows, and much more!

GET INVOLVED AT THE MASQUE THEATRE

Always wanted to be involved in the theatre, but never had the opportunity? Now is your chance! At the Masque Theatre, not only does our community consist of those performing on-stage, but various other roles which are essential so that all runs smoothly.

Shakespeare in Muizenberg - on-stage alert: Shakespeare Schools Festival South Africa (SSFSA)

Great news to hear that the Shakespeare ZA will be on at the Masque from May 6-8. The fest is also on Artscape Theatre Centre April 19-24.

This is the 11th edition of the festival, established by Russian theatremaker, Kseniya Filinova-Bruton (now based back in Russia). She was a drama teacher in Cape Town and had the vision to make the Bard accessible and for school learners. Schools perform abridged 30 minute versions Shakes plays. They can do in period, contemporary voice etc Any language. Learners with barriers - visual, hearing, physical - have made their mark with incredible stagings, over the years. There are no barriers to particpation. This is great South African theatre story and in the time of Rona, it takes on extra significance as GREAT great story.
